Last week, we offered a look inside The West Wing dining room at Be Our Guest Restaurant, which is coming soon to New Fantasyland. This week, let’s head the other direction and take a glimpse into another dining room – The Rose Gallery.
According to our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering, this dining room (one of three total) is a formal gallery that that is complete with artwork that celebrates Belle, Beast and their extended enchanted family, including Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, Chip and Maurice.
The centerpiece of the room is a lovely seven-foot-tall music box (including the base) of Belle and Beast that swirls about and plays actual music box music. According to our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering, the storyline behind this magical music box is that it was carved by Maurice, Belle’s father, to celebrate the couple’s love. Guests who visit Maurice’s Cottage for the Enchanted Tales With Belle attraction can even see the maquette and drawings he used to build this music box.
When visiting The Rose Gallery dining room, be sure to check out the amazing rose chandelier, which sits just above the music box, and be on the lookout for tiny rose details, like the roses carved into the room’s banquette.
